Building Performance is applied to a home, by considering the home as a whole. All parts of a building work with other parts. The house needs an effective thermal envelope (which is continuous insulation). Add to that an effective air barrier, in the right place. These systems then allow the air conditioning, or heating systems to do their jobs efficiently, which is to maintain comfort levels in the home.
ENERGY FACTIf you are remodeling, insist on IC Rated recessed (can) lights. These are lights that can be in contact with insulation. Can (recessed) lights that are not rated as IC, cannot be in contact with insulation and proper installation lowers the effectiveness of your attic insulation.
